Steam Link Game Streaming App Available in Beta on Android

Steam Link beta for Android brings your game collection to your mobile

As we reported a week ago, Valve is releasing an app for Android and iOS that allows users to stream games from their Steam library to other devices.

I was stunned at how well the stream held up when playing games like Far Cry 5, Doom, and Rocket League on my iPad. Naturally, the more powerful your hardware and connection are, the better your experience will be: Valve recommends connecting your PC to the web via an ethernet cable, and ensuring your phone is using your router's 5GHz band if possible.

According to the Steam Link page on Google Play, the device needs a Steam Link controller or another bluetooth-enabled controller to operate, as well as a connection to the 5GHz band on a user's WiFi network.

Only the Android version of Steam Link has been released for now. When it does arrive, it will support any device running iOS 10 or newer, as well as Apple TVs running tvOS 10.3 and above. This means that gamers with Android devices will be able to take it for a spin, but note that since the app is in beta, it means that there might be some kinks that have yet to be worked out, and features that aren't necessarily guaranteed to make the final cut. For streaming on TV, your gaming PC and TV must be connected to the same network. Thankfully, the Steam Link app has built in support for the Steam Controller, but support is otherwise inconsistent.

The app also supports Bluetooth controllers for smartphones, allowing players an alternative input. Not all options can easily hook up to Android and iOS devices, and one keyboard I regularly use with my iPad wasn't recognized by the Steam Link app at all.
